It's been an od year, lots heard but no complete album that really made me swoon, despite some rather fine electronica in particular. Here's a provisional list of 25 though:

1. School of Seven Bells - Disconnect From Desire
2. Rowland S. Howard - Pop Crimes
3. LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening
4. Brian Eno - Small Craft On A Milk Sea
5. Heligoland - Massive Attack
6. Peter Gabriel - Scratch My Back
7. Interpol - Interpol
8. Darkstar - North
9. Underworld - Barking
10. Autechre - (Oversteps)
11. Gold Panda - Lucky Shiner
12. Luke Abbott - Holkham Drones
13. The Parks Dept. - No/Noise
14. Grasscut - 1 Inch: 1/2 Mile
15. Skjolbrot - Maersk
16. Edwyn Collins - Losing Sleep
17. Grinderman - Grinderman 2
18. Blood Red Shoes - Fire Like This
19. Dum Dum Girls - I Will Be
20. Four Tet - There Is Love In You
21. The Fall - Your Future Our Clutter
22. Emma Pollock - The Law Of Large Numbers
23. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
24. Cathal Coughlan - Rancho Tetrahedron
25. A Certain Ratio - Mind Made Up

Soundtrack:
The The - Tony

Re-issue:
Koner box set or The Cure's Disintegration probably. The Madness re-issues have been very well done as well. Haven't got the Orange Juice box set yet though...

Disappointment:
Freebass' awful album (not a surprise as such) and the Goldfrapp album, after how good their last one was.


Must add Walls by Walls to this list, having only recently got it and really liking it. And the Cathal album deserves to be higher, following some rather more careful and repeated listens.

And yes, the OJ boxset steals the Re-issues title too.
